Galaxy play to scoreless draw against Whitecaps
The Vancouver Whitecaps tied the L.A. Galaxy 0-0 on Saturday night to extend their home undefeated streak to 11 games.
The Whitecaps (2-1-1) are 6-0-5 during the home streak. The Galaxy are 1-1-1.
The Whitecaps controlled the majority of the play. Kei Kamara and Cristian Techera failed to convert good chances, and Alphonso Davies used his speed to move the ball and find openings.
In the 71st minute, Kamara ran down a long ball, sliced between two defenders, then watched goalkeeper David Bingham come out of his net before sending a shot wide. Afterward, Kamara lay on his back on the field, arguing he had been fouled.
Techera threatened on a free kick in the 61st minute. His left-footed shot from just outside the box went wide and high. In the 37th minute he took a long ball from midfielder Efrain Juarez then sent a shot just over top of the Galaxy net.
Emmanuel Boateng had a chance for Los Angeles in the 56th minute. He got behind the defense and waited for goalkeeper Stefan Marinovic to charge out of his net before sending his shot wide of the goal.
